We gave it a B-

Isak (Joachim Calmeyer), a diffident Norwegian farmer, sits around his cozy kitchen as Folke (Tomas Norstrom), a timid Swedish functionary, observes his behavior from a giant high chair. The icy whimsy is well sustained, but you don’t laugh at the movie so much as wait for the joke to thaw.
